On Friday, the Sustainable Environment and Ecological Development Society (SEED) made a new collaboration with the Australian Consulate-General in Bengaluru in order to help the women entrepreneurs residing in tier 2 and tier 3 cities in Karnataka, including Hubballi-Dharwad. The project titled "EmpowerHER" seeks to empower aspiring women by providing them with hand training, mentorship guidance, and community support.

Over 2,000 aspired participants residing in the regions of Mysusru, Hubballi, Dharwad, and Belagavi will be able to join the workforce and contribute significantly to their communities due to this program.

This collaboration is evidence of the emerging trend toward greater encouragement of women entrepreneurs in Australia and all over the world by eradicating the gendered class structures and paving the way for women-led firms. For their scale-up investments, two Hubballi startups have been selected to receive funds for a similar development under the TIDE 2.0 scheme.
